When to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

A common question is whether a personal injury lawyer is necessary for your case or claim? One important thing to remember is that the Advocates Law offer free consultations and case evaluations, so if you are unsure about hiring a personal injury attorney, the free phone call can give you some direction.

If you have been seriously injured in an accident and those injuries could have a potential long term impact on your life, you should strongly consider hiring a personal injury attorney. You should especially consider hiring a personal injury attorney if you were involved in a car accident and the at-fault driver is uninsured or under insured. When the at fault driver does not have the necessary coverage for your accident, hiring a personal injury lawyer can help ensure that you will get fair compensation from your insurance company. If you and the other party involved are disputing who was at fault, hiring a personal injury attorney can help protect your rights.  Your attorney will use his/her car accident experience to investigate and determine who was truly at fault for your accident.

If a claims adjuster from your insurance or the at-fault driver’s insurance is pressuring you to accept a settlement offer, an advocate can help you know what to do.  This can include the insurance company offering a lower settlement in hopes that you will take their offer.

If you don’t feel like you are being adequately compensated to cover the costs from the accident or the settlement offer is not enough to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage; hiring a personal injury lawyer can help ensure that you will receive fair compensation for your accident.
The Advocates Law are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to answer your questions at no cost to you. The Advocates Law website, blog, and specifically the resource center contains more information on when to hire a personal injury attorney.
